Workplace First Aid

5/13/2020 (Permalink)

As a company that deals with heavy equipment, demolition, and power tools we need to be ready in case one of our production members injures themself on a job.  It is important for all vehicles to have the appropriate first aid tools for any injury that could occur.  A wide range of accidents can happen while on the job.  For instance one of our production members was removing wood floor and missed the crowbar and wacked herself with the hammer and ended up having to go to the doctor. Had there not been the appropriate medical supplies in the vehicle she was in or even if there was none on the job, the arm could have swollen up quite a bit more than it did. There was gauze in the vehicle and an ice pack that helped keep the swelling down.

Examples of what should be in a first aid kit: 

  • Bandaids (for cuts or scratches)
  • Gauze and tape (for twisting)
  • Alcohol wipes (cleaning)
  • Self-Adhesive Medical Gauze
  • Medical Scissors
  • Tweezers
  •  Ice packs
  • Burn Cream
  • Contact List for Emergencies

Make sure that you have emergency contact information for all your employees and alert the proper authorities when an injury is too severe.
